APPARATUS FOR PURIFYING WATER.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent N 0. 695,399, dated March 1 1, 1 902.

Application filed January 4; 1902. Serial No, 88,412- (No model.)

To aZZ whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, ISAAC P. KINSEY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and :St-ate of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Water-Purifying Systems and Apparatus, of which the followingis a specification.

My invention relates to a novel system and apparatus for softening, purifying, and aerating water. v

To illustrate one form of my invention,l annex hereto a sheet of drawings, in which the same reference characters are used to designate identical parts in all the figures, of which Figure 1 is a central section through a tank in which my apparatus is placed, the apparatus itself'being shown inside elevation. Fig. 2 is a plan view of the same. Fig. 3 is a central vertical section through the apparatuswith the discharge-arms broken oil. Fig. 4:

is a horizontal section on theline A A of Fig.

3, and Fig. 5 is a horizontal section on the line B B of Fig. 3.

My apparatus is conveniently employed in connection with one or more tanks a, into.

which a valve-controlled water-supply pipeb leads and opens into the waterreceiving chamber 0, which preferably takes the form of a cup-like cylinder, into which the supplypipe 19 opens atone sideand fromwhich a plurality of discharge-pipes d, preferably equidistantly arranged,radiate and have their dis-- charging ends curved and directed substan-j tially tangentially to the sides of the tank, so that the water discharged therefrom tends to form a rotating body aroundthe outer por- Thewater-receiving chamher is preferably placed some little distance above the bottom of the tank upon the sup ports 6, so that there will be some room for the sediment to collectbeneath the discharge pipes d, which have their outer ends preferably supported upon suitable blocks f.

The air-supply is conveyed'through a supply-pipe g to the air-receiving chamber h, which is similar to the water-receiving chamher 0, except that it is on a smallerscale and is preferably concentric therewith and located on the top thereof, its base being conveniently enlarged, so as to extend over the top airtight chamber.

of the cylinder forming the chamber 0, so that it can be bolted thereto, as atj, so as to form a water-tight receptacle. The ai r-supplypipe 9* opens into the chamber h at the top thereof, being let into the plate It, which forms said topv and which is conveniently bolted onto the cylindrical body portion, at Z, so as to form an A pluralityof air-discharge pipes 12, similar to the water-discharge pipes d, are let into the sides of the chamber 7t and are preferably arranged equidistantly of each other and half-way between the waterdischarge pipes d and likewise have their ends curved and pointing tangentially, so that the air is discharged between and somewhat above the jets of water, so that it is in position to be thoroughly mixed with the water While it is being discharged. In addition 10 the air discharged from the ends of the pipes m, which cover the sides of the tank, I preferablyemploy another discharge from an aperture n, madein the joint of the air-supply pipeg', which tends I to permita portion of the air to ascend through the center of the tank. The supply of air under pressure may be furnished from any suitable source, such as an injector 0, secured at any suitable point in the air-supply pipe. The tank will be supplied with the customary overflow-valves, discharge-supply valves, and the necessary openings through which the accumulated deposit maybe removed, the'illustration being intended to show only the novel features of my invention.

Theoperation of the system is as follows: The valve controlling the water-supply is open and the water is allowed t0 flow through the chamber 0 and out of the discharge-pipes cl until the water rises above the air-discharge pipes m. The chemicals which may be used forsofteningthe water and precipitating orwhich the water is purified and ready for use.

materials where it is desired to secure an inti mate and thorough impregnation of any liquid by any gaseous fluid.

IVhile I have shown my invention as embodied in the form which I at present consider best adapted to carry out its purposes, it will be understood that it is capable of modifications andthat I do not desire to be limited in the interpretation of the following claims except as may be necessitated by the state of the prior art.

What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States, is

1. In an apparatus of the class described, the combination with a tank, of aliquid-receiving chamber therein having a plurality of liquiddischarging apertures connected therewith, a pipe for connecting said chamber with a source of liquid-supply, a gas-receiving chamber having a corresponding plurality of gasdischargingapertures located adjacent to the liquid-discharging apertures, and a pipe for conveyinginto said gas-receiving chamber gas under pressure; substantially as and for the purpose described.

2. In an apparatus of the class descrihed,the combination with a tank, of aliquid-receiving chamber therein having a plurality of discharge-pipes radiating therefrom and provided with discharge-apertures at their outer ends, a supply-pipe for connecting said chamber with a source of liquid-supply, a gas-receiving chamber located adjacent said liquidreceiving chamber and having a corresponding plurality of gas-discharging pipes radiating therefrom having discharge-apertures at their outer ends in the vicinity of the liquiddischarging apertures, and a gas-supply pipe for conveying into said gas-receiving chamber gas under pressure; substantially as and for the purpose described.

3. In an apparatus of the class described, the combination with a tank, of a liquid-receiving chamber therein having a plurality of liquid-discharge pipes radiating therefrom and having their outer ends curved so as to direct the discharge therefrom tangentially, a supply-pipe for connecting said liquid-receiving chamber with a source of liquid-supply, a gas-receiving chamberlocated adjacent said liquid-receiving chamber and having a corresponding plurality of gas-discharging pipes radiating therefrom and having their outer ends curved so as to direct the discharge therefrom tangentially and into the line of discharge of the liquid-discharging pipes, and a pipe for conveying into said gas-receiving chamber gas under pressure; substantially as and for the purpose described.

4. In an apparatus of the class described ,the combination with a tank, ofa liquid-receiving chamber therein consisting of a hollow cylinder having a plurality of liquid-discharging pipes radiating from the sides thereof with their ends curved so as to direct the liquid discharge therefrom tangentially, a supplypipe for connecting such chamber with a source of liquid-supply,a gas-receiving chamber consisting of a hollow cylinder having its bottom bolted to the top of the liquid-receiving chamber and provided with a plurality of gas-discharging pipes radiating from its sides alternately with the liquid-discharging pipes and having their ends curved so as to direct the gas-discharge tangentially into the line of discharge of the liquid, and a supplypipe for conveying into said gas-receiving chamber gas under pressure and opening into the top of said gas-receiving chamber; substantially as and for the purpose'described.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.

ISAAC P. KINSEY.
